With more and more Australians transitioning to working from home (or choosing to self-isolate at home without work), the demand on mobile networks and broadband networks is skyrocketing.

Joining Telstra, Optus, and other providers is amaysim, which has today announced additional mobile data for customers to help them stay connected during this challenging time.

From today all customers on the $10 mobile plan will receive 10GB of additional data, $20 mobile plan customers will receive 20GB of additional data, and $30 mobile plan customers will receive 30GB of additional data. The additional mobile data will take effect immediately, for use until 15 April 2020.

All amaysim customers receive unlimited talk and text in Australia as standard, and as of 18 March 2020, customers on $40 and above mobile plans receive unlimited mobile data for use until 15 April 2020.

amaysim Founder, CEO and Managing Director, Peter O’Connell said:

“We recognise that our customers rely on our service to connect with family, friends and colleagues, as well as medical and emergency service providers. Keeping our customers connected is our number one priority! That’s why we’re offering customer additional mobile data to assist their increasing needs during this period.”

 With the strain on the NBN expected to increase over the coming weeks, and months, additional mobile data has the potential to free up bandwidth during peak periods.
